Question:

How do I clean a Persian rug?

I have a rug imported from Iran. It is made of wool on a silk backing. My cat was sick on it and some of the color ran—vermilion into cream color. It is getting a bit dingy and I would like to get it cleaned. Is there any way to get the pinkinsh stain out of the cream part. It is a beautiful rug.

Answer:

If the color ran, your rug was probably made with vegetable dyes rather than chemical dyes. Don't try to clean it yourself, you will make it worse! Take it to a cleaner specializing in oriental rugs and talk to the owner, not the counter clerk. It may be dicey, so ensure you use a professional company.

There are professional rug cleaners almost anywhere. The best rug cleaners use a long conveyor belt like thing that takes the rug, vacuums it then shoots it with high pressure water and soap mixture while continually vacuuming it back out. The rug is then hung to air dry and is brushed and rolled up.
